Here’s a look at five of the most exciting plays coming to The Great White Way this season – with picks for every theater fan.

Avant-Garde:Hand to God

Nostalgic: Finding Neverland

Trendsetter:Fun Home

Date Night: It Shoulda Been You

If you’ve become a pro at breaking up fights and soothing weeping bridesmaids at your friends’ weddings, you’re ready for David Hyde Pierce’s new comedy about a bride and groom whose families make the Fockers look sane. Opens April 14

Traditionalist: Something Rotten

Once upon a time, a hotshot named Shakespeare (Christian Borle) made it hard for other playwrights to earn a living. Led by Nick Bottom (Brian d’Arcy James), a band of unemployed artists decide to strike back by inventing the first musical. Opens April 22
